Cuomo Calls McConnell Bankruptcy Comment ‘Really Dumb’

Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York pushed back against Senator Mitch McConnell’s suggestion that states hard-hit by coronavirus declare bankruptcy.

Senator Mitch McConnell goes out and he says, maybe the states should declare bankruptcy. OK, this is one of the really dumb ideas of all time. And, you know, I said to my colleagues in Washington, I would have insisted that state and local funding was in this current bill because I don’t believe they want to fund state and local governments. And not to fund state and local governments is incredibly shortsighted. They want to fund small business, fund the airlines, I understand that. But state and local government funds police and fire, and teachers and schools. How irresponsible and how reckless? I’m the governor of all New Yorkers — Democrat, Republican, independent. I don’t even care what your political party is, I represent you. And we are all there to support each other. This is not the time or the place or the situation to start your divisive politics. It is just not.
